Dangerous Music Liaison

6-Way Analog Insert Switcher

Instant recall is no longer just for digital. With the LIAISON from Dangerous Music you can store and recall complex analog patches that include up to six stereo or mono analog paths. You’ll experience the ease and quickness of digital plug-ins with your analog rig. Want to try your favorite mix-buss chain on a piano track? Or quickly compare two analog EQs within that chain? – just push a button. With the onboard, latency-free, audiophile-grade parallel buss, you can blend your processed and unprocessed signals for rock solid parallel effects that otherwise require elaborate large format consoles and patchbays.

Dangerous Music’s Liaison stores and recalls complex analogue patches that include up to six stereo or mono analogue paths – providing the ease and quickness of digital plug-ins with an analogue rig. With the on-board, latency-free, audiophile-grade parallel buss, you can amalgamate your processed and unprocessed signals for rock solid parallel effects that otherwise necessitate sophisticated large format consoles and patchbays.

Many of us don’t realise that when contrasting sounds we’re relying on our short term memory. The shorter the gap, the more reliable our judgements are. Research has shown that for tonal judgements we start to lose discernment after mere fractions of a second. In the analogue environment we’re typically constrained into physically repatching gear when likening different sounds, creating gaps so large that the human brain simply can’t make much use of the comparison. The Dangerous Music Liaison empowers you to compare your analogue patches without a gap, making A/B comparisons in the analogue realm far easier – and actually useful.

At the core of the Liaison is a set of uncompromising analogue circuits, developed by our head designer Chris Muth. World-leading components are deployed throughout the Liaison’s 100 per cent passive analogue relay switching system, delivering an honestly transparent and robust topology for flawlessly hosting all your outboard gear. True hard-wire bypass relays completely extricate any gear from the signal path, including analogue units that lack an integrated bypass, or hard bypass, circuit. All of the Liaison’s components alternate instantly and silently, providing true A/B comparisons without colouration, latency or disruptive noises.

Somewhat ironically, as digital audio makes leaps and bounds, analogue gear is undergoing a simultaneous renaissance. The Dangerous Music Liaison enables your analogue gear to perform as deftly as your digital plugins. The Liaison delivers the ease of programmable patches, seamless rerouting as well as the indisputable advantage of instant A/B comparisons, all in the analogue environment. With the Liaison you’ll realise your creative potential while keeping your studio primed for whatever tracking, mixing or mastering task comes your way.
